the principal was instrumental to have surgery. i was out. modified work position, untrained, and harassed because i couldn't do all the things that needed to be done. but that's -- my point is that there -- they're trying to dismiss me simply because i had a blowout with the principal. and all the narratives that i've written and given to have been changed aro[b]p!ir like that i am the culprit. both times i asked for a police report. i was never supported. where are my!ññ?ñ rights. i have no rights. once i started complaining to represented, you know, or given having problems with the administration and i hadn't had problems before. so basically i just want
justice. and here i am fighting dismissal, and being told that ? don't do my job. i informed the principal that i didn't want to go into the counseling office because it was a volatile situation. phone thrown at my head. and they're denying all of this. but it's in writing. there was a letter issued to the parents saying that all of these allegations were untrue. but it's allc?ñ?ñ? documentated. >> thank you, mr. caine. >> good evening, everyone. my name's linda cooks. i was teacher at martin luther king school. walked in to take my grades and i've come before the board before. and i tried to figure out what i walked in to take my grades and theéñ?ñ? student who was --y
the principal approached me and said that she was head on ññ?ñ?e principal. but -- and shea said -- i told her to get her fat a off of me. i looked at my student and said i don't appreciate that type of language but i could understand her. and i started thinking whatz:uri would say. i wrote down a few things, nothing to say but do the right thing. i believe the children are the future. teach them well let them lead the÷3ñ?ñ? way. show them the beauty they possess inside. give them a sense of pride to make it easier. teach them well. let's teach them well, not sit be a+zñ?ñ? teacher in san franciscç masters, english credential, and i'm not capable of teaching in the bayview. that doesn't bother me as much as mynññ?ñ? student being sat or some reason. at this point in my lifeañ?ñ?ñ t
doesn't matter. what matters is the childrennhte treated fairly, with respect. i have one more degree. my daughter's an attorney. my sons are college graduates. and when i look at all of these achievements, i know what works and i know what does n4bñ?ñ?ñot. mistreating kids, that does not work. loving works. and all of you, you know who you are, come before you before. ióñsgcr(p told you that child wt on. what part you guys don't understand. what part. where's the video. you guys know something is wrong there. what's wrong when you don't have security there. you have the best security at that school. it worked well. something is deadly wrong at martin luther king school. there were a7rñ?ñ lot of mice t, mice everywhere. that's what the kids had. they did not have the things that the kids have out in the avenue. treat these kids right over here. what's wrong with this picture.
>> thank you]ñ?ñ?. commodore sloan elementary school and i'm happy to announce indigenous people, which i'm glad our school took time to do. i was surprised even though wef? observed the holiday known as columbus daysvñ? weekend we didt educate our children on why we observed it. i found it ironic that something indigenous could be perceived as principals and teachers and parents weret÷ñ?ñ?ñ supportive d these types of events provide acceptances and understanding of other cultures and give us better understanding and appreciation of our own. so even though it was a labor of love and strong emphasis on labor and love, that this was a
collaborative effort that would not have happened without the support of our principal, our internal pco board and the family voice and of course the indian education program. michael -- that becomes an annual program and feel strongly with the continued support of9[? the members of the board of education, our superintendent's office and the indian education program that this could be implemented inese r every schol throughout the district. thank you. >> thank you. item k, advisory committee reports and appointments to advisory committee by the board members. any appointment by board members? megan. >> i'd like to appoint aib rel tal ina for the -- commission. >> did you get that? thank you. any other appointments? item l, special order of@?ñ?

will be commissioner mendoza mengetsd we scheduled this for election on weather yay or neigh thanayon prop 30. although don't get excited because it only stabilizes us temporarily but at least we'll know what we will be getting for the next several years. so we had some goodíl9[ç around what that will look like. we still have -- we won't have any mid-year cuts for 12-13 but we will be seeing cuts in the coming years. so there will be deficits that we'll be facing, in the coming years. we talked about the mandated cost block[u&,9- getting some additional dollars from that. and then the budget projections were bleak. they continue to be bleak. so once again, we're not --
we're still in a position where we'll be cutting and modifying and adjusting for next year. giving. >> who's first? commissioner wynns. >> commissioner wynns: i just mandated cost block grant be distributed to all the board members and hopefully at some time in the future we could have a discussion about that, because how this is going to work, this is another new change to the funding structure. it would be good for us all to know before we do the budget next year, to understand that better, i think. thank you. >> can i just encourage, if you haven't received this, mr. lee, all of the board members we asked for your input on what you'd like to hear.
coming up we'd like to do our budget committee earlier rather than later knowing there are additional cuts we have to focus on and to set our priorities. we also have had several discussions around this possible supplemental coming from the city so there will be some discussions around what we're going to be doing to continue to fund what the city is potentially going to be funding. tough decisions to make and we want to do it earlier rather than later. so did you get any feedback from anyone? i'm going to put you all out there now. >> i hate to do this commissioners but no i haven't received any feedback yet. if it would be helpful i can resend recirculate the e-mail. i know it was at an inopportune time for a lot of you. >> we want to encourage you because it's information like the block grant you had requested, commissioner wynns that helps understand the budget better and will help us make
priority choices which we know we will have to do. thank you. >> vice president norton nngetsd i was going to ask the same question about the materials that commissioner wynns asked. >> commissioner -- >> thank you. i just wanted to announce that the city select committee, next meeting is november 29, thursd thursday. >> any other -- commissioner murase. >> we will talk about fees for community partners using schoolh facilities. >> i just want to also remind everybody that there is a committee of the whole on december 4, and we are almost narrowed in on a topic. >> commissioner fewer. >> commissioner fewer: i just want to wish everybody a happy
thanksgiving. >> is there a meeting at your home on thanksgiving or something? okay. >> commissioner yee, i can do this later but based on the discussion i just had with deputy superintendent lee this afternoon and something i will be doing tomorrow, i think it would be good if somewhere in the budget committee we could cuts, and what the impact of those might be. >> the fiscal cliff you mean? >> well i'm doing a conference call tomorrow with nsca about the possible impact of equest ration. but whatever they look like, and if they occur, it would be good for us to understand what that impact might be on us, i think. that's another piece -- something that we're going to need, information we're going to need if we're going to --
